SALINEVILLE OH- Southern Local took to the court Monday night looking to end a 2 game skid after starting the season hot winning 4 of their first 5 contests.
The Crusaders of Steubenville Catholic Central may have caught the Indians at a bad time as Southern took it to their visitors in straight sets 25-17, 25-15, 25-13. The night also belonged to Rylee Mellott as the junior started the night just 25 assists shy of reaching the 1,000 assist milestone. Mellott would reach that milestone in the 3rd set as she would finish the night with 32 assists and now stands at 1,007 for her career. Ashley Shroades benefitted all night long from the work of Mellott as she would finish the night with 18 kills. Hannah Reynolds was a great presence at the net contributing 9 kills, and 2 blocks to go along with 6 points. Kya McCulley added 9 points and 4 digs, while Olivia Kerns talleyed 4 blocks.
Southern (6-3) has no time to rest as they welcome EOAC foe East Palestine to Salineville on Tuesday.
